‘Shape of Water,’ ‘Blade Runner,’ ‘Black Mirror’ Win Art Directors Guild Awards

The Shape of Water,” “Blade Runner 2049” and “Logan” walked away with top film honors at the 2018 Art Directors Guild Awards Saturday night.

On the television side, “Game of Thrones,” “The Handmaid’s Tale” and “Black Mirror” were among the winners.

Previously announced, animation directors Ron Clements and John Musker received the William Cameron Menzies Award, while Lucasfilm’s Kathleen Kennedy received the Cinematic Imagery Award. Michael Baugh received the Outstanding Creative Achievement Award, and Lifetime Achievement honors went to Norm Newberry, John Moffitt, James J. Murakami and Martin Kline.

Even though she shepherds one of the most successful film franchises of all time, Kennedy recognized the the challenge of the “disappearing theatrical experience.” The trend, she said, should “inspire us to move cinema into the future.”

This year’s Oscar nominees for production design were “Beauty and the Beast,” “Blade Runner 2049,” “Darkest Hour,” “Dunkirk” and “The Shape of Water.”
